DKIM, which is an abbreviation for DomainKeys Identified Mail, is an authentication system, which obstructs email addresses from being forged and email content from being manipulated. This is done by attaching a digital signature to each and every email sent from an address under a particular domain name. The signature is published based on a private key that’s available on the outgoing mail server and it can be verified using a public key, which is available in the global DNS database. Thus, any email with changed content or a spoofed sender can be spotted by email service providers. This technology will enhance your worldwide web security considerably and you will be sure that any e-mail message sent from a business ally, a bank, etc., is genuine. When you send emails, the recipient will also be sure that you are indeed the one who has sent them. Any mail that appears to be fraudulent may either be flagged as such or may never enter the recipient’s inbox, based on how the particular provider has decided to cope with such messages.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Shared Web Hosting
The DomainKeys Identified Mail feature is activated by default for all domains that are hosted in a shared web hosting account on our cloud website hosting platform, so you won’t have to do anything on your end to turn it on. The sole requirement is that the given domain should be hosted in a hosting account on our end using our MX and NS resource records, so that the email messages will go through our mail servers. The private encryption key will be created on the server and the TXT resource record, which includes the public key, will be published to the Domain Name System automatically, so you won’t have to do anything manually on your end in order to activate this functionality. The DKIM email validation system will allow you to send credible messages, so if you are sending offers or a newsletter to customers, for example, your emails will always reach their target viewers, whereas unsolicited third parties won’t be able to spoof your email addresses.
DomainKeys Identified Mail in Semi-dedicated Servers
If you choose any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting plans that we are offering, you’ll be able to use the DomainKeys Identified Mail option with any domain name that you add to your brand new semi-dedicated server account without any manual setup, as our outstanding cloud hosting platform will create all the mandatory records automatically, as long as the domain name uses our name servers. The latter is needed for a TXT resource record to be created for the domain name, since this is how the public cryptographic key can become available in the global Domain Name System. The private key will also be added automatically to our mail servers, so whenever you send a new email, it will carry our system’s e-signature. The number of spam email messages keeps increasing every year and very frequently phony addresses are used, but if you use our hosting services, you and your customers or partners will not have to worry about that.
